The Origin of Seating

The Origin of Seating

The Origin task chair focuses on natural ergonomics, positive posture reinforcement & even weight distribution to keep the user’s body in check while they work. With other task chairs, users still have to lean forward to access their keyboard or mouse, thereby negating the chair’s ergonomics. Here, a split keyboard & mouse are integrated into the armrests so the spine can remain supported while weight is distributed to the forearms rather than the wrists. Oh, yeah… it’s also really really really ridiculously good looking!

Over The Edge

Over The Edge

I almost disregarded the value of the Edge Tape until I came across the thankless job of helping a friend pack his boxes, when he needed to move a new home. Endless boxes, endless tape and the same old frustration of where has the tape end disappeared to and why does it keep rolling off the table! Murphy’s Law says to stack the tape, but we all know that rarely ever happens.

Clean Sweep

Clean Sweep

Tired of the old dustpan and same old functionality of a dustpan and broom? Its time to adopt the Sweeper & Dustpan, crafted with the intention of upping the esthetic value of these humble cleaning tools. Besides the good looks, the innovating factor is the use of the dustpan’s handle as a funnel. Simply deposit the dirt into any-sized bin with ease!

Better Than Frozen Pizza

Better Than Frozen Pizza

‘There is not much joy in frozen pizzas or eating out every other night.’ Based on his personal experience of living alone and hating to cook for a single person, designer Kim Risager brings us the alternative of the Fastronomy Cooker. Will this turnkey appliance motivate the singletons to cook a sumptuous meal or will this concept just be that – another idea; lets have a look.

Happy to be Held

Happy to be Held

The ôr lamp was designed with nomadism in mind and lives freely as part of your home, office or elsewhere. The unique stretched-cone shape makes variations in light intensity possible simply by repositioning the design. Furthermore, the light intensity is adjusted with a simple touch to any part of the sensitive shell. In the users hands, it grows brighter before dimming again. Simply set it down when the preferred brightness is achieved!

Gotto love the cheeky tagline of the 3F Concept Vacuum Cleaner, it says ‘Form Follows Function.’ Given that Yanko Design believes that ‘Form Beyond Function’, the debate surrounding this vacuum’s form and function, can get quite heated!

Zero Illumination

Zero Illumination

If you had to rethink the flashlight, what design would you try to evolve it to? André Duarte has brought in a whole new dimension as far orientation goes. The 0 Light can be held in the palm of your hand and beam up the lights to any direction. It’s like this little object in your hand that is lined with powerful LEDs. Interesting form for a seemingly basic object.

solidThinking Evolve® 9.5 – A New Level of Modeling Control

solidThinking Evolve® 9.5 – A New Level of Modeling Control

My initiation into the design community began more as a content writer than as a design enthusiast. Typical design jargons like renders, 3D modeling and cropping were alien words for me. I guess I never fully understood how these words could become the differentiating factor between a good design and great design. In due course, I learnt my lesson and my respect for designers grew and I also learnt that solidThinking was not just constructive thinking but also a vital tool for designers.

Timbre Timber

Timbre Timber

Timbre, by Casey Lin, trims the essence of the speaker down to the bare minimum, allowing the inherent qualities of the materials to become the focal point of the design. With superfluous elements stripped away, all that remain visible are glass and wood, chosen for their enhanced acoustic qualities. Placing different objects on the raw wood block instantly changes the sound, encouraging user interaction and a deeper connection to the object. Jump to the video to hear how it works!
